Produce Donor Partners
Produce donors are key partners in assisting FVG in providing ingredients for our soup mix. The major sources are green house companies, frozen food distributors, and farmers. All product in the lower mainland is picked up by our own truck. Some product from outside the lower mainland is delivered by commercial truckers who only charge a nominal rate.
Some of the major donors are:
Heppell’s Potato Corp | B.C Frozen Foods | VanderMeulen Greenhouses Inc. | Loblaw Village Farms | Lucerne Foods | Agape Food Bank | Walla Walla River Package and Storage
Our soup mix is given free of charge to relief organization, church groups and individuals. They are required to submit a request form indicating the country, people group, adequate transportation funding, staffing for distribution in the specific area and provide feedback by means of images and reports. This information is passed on to our volunteers and supporters.
In addition to many churches and individuals, some of the major organizations that contribute are:
Canadian Food For The Hungry | Starfish Ministries | Global Emergency Missions | Master's Foundation Love Guatemala | Seeds of Hope | Compassion Resource Warehouse | Global Aid Network Changing Lives Through Jesus | Mission Without Borders | Mennonite Central Committee
